Astros | Carlos Gomez returns to lineup

Tue, 31 May 2016 09:37:13 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez (rib cage) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Tuesday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Gomez was so bad to begin the year (.182-0-5) that he was dropped in many mixed leagues. You can take a flier on him if he's available, but don't expect a huge turnaround. Benching him until he shows signs of life is advised.

Astros | Jason Castro sitting vs. southpaw

Tue, 31 May 2016 09:33:47 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Tuesday, May 31. OF Evan Gattis is behind the plate and is hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis has been playing regularly and is batting .298 with four home runs and six RBI since being recalled from the minors May 17. His fantasy value is maximized in daily contests hitting fourth, and he's also slashing .342/.390/.605 with three of his five home runs against lefties this year. Start him today.

Astros | Colby Rasmus out vs. lefty

Tue, 31 May 2016 09:32:13 -0700

Houston Astros OF Colby Rasmus is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Tuesday, May 31. OF Jake Marisnick is starting in left field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Marisnick did hit a homer the other day but otherwise is hitting an unimpressive .169 with two stolen bases. He's mainly attractive for his speed, but he doesn't move the fantasy needle much hitting low in the order, and he'll essentially move to a bench role again with Carlos Gomez back from the DL.

Astros | George Springer continues to produce

Mon, 30 May 2016 23:57:35 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer went 3-for-4 with a pair of runs scored and an RBI Monday, May 30, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Springer is producing huge numbers in the leadoff spot. Despite a lack of success in the theft department, Springer remains a must-start fantasy option regardless of his spot in the lineup.

Astros | Collin McHugh goes the distance

Mon, 30 May 2016 23:57:03 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh allowed three earned runs, five hits and a walk with eight strikeouts in a complete game win against the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday, May 30. It was his first career complete game.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh has posted 26 strikeouts over his past three outings, and he has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option after a rocky start to the season.

Astros | George Springer thriving in leadoff spot

Mon, 30 May 2016 13:21:49 -0700

Houston Astros OF George Springer is hitting .370 through six games since moving to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Springer is having an excellent season with 30 runs, 11 home runs, 28 RBI and a .270/.358/.480 slash line. His only flaw has been on the base paths, as Springer has only stole three bases in nine attempts, which might limit his opportunities for swipes somewhat going forward. Still, he's emerging as a high-end outfielder.

Astros | Houston sitting three lefties

Mon, 30 May 2016 11:16:14 -0700

Houston Astros 1B Luis Valbuena, 3B Colin Moran and OF Tony Kemp are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Edwin Escobar Monday, May 30. OF Colby Rasmus will start in left field, while OF Jake Marisnick will start in center field and is batting seventh. 1B Tyler White will start at first base and is batting fifth. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at third base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Marisnick has been more productive at the plate recently but is still hitting only .164 on the season, so owners should be able to find better options. White and Gonzalez are both hitting under .230 this season and are not strong fantasy option.

Astros | Evan Gattis on the bench

Mon, 30 May 2016 11:05:48 -0700

Houston Astros C Evan Gattis is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Edwin Escobar Monday, May 30, since the team is playing in a National League stadium and will not use a designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis could receive a start at catcher later in the series, but owners in daily fantasy leagues should avoid Gattis.

Astros | Colin Moran sent to the minors

Mon, 30 May 2016 08:11:09 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Colin Moran was sent to the minors Monday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: Moran had only two hits in 19 at-bats in his first taste of the majors. He could be back up later this year, but fellow prospect and teammate Alex Bregman has a higher ceiling at the hot corner and should be higher on your list of stash candidates in keeper/dynasty formats.

Astros | Ken Giles hit hard

Sun, 29 May 2016 19:08:24 -0700

Houston Astros RP Ken Giles allowed two runs on two hits and a walk in the seventh inning against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Just when it seemed as if Giles was finding his form, he has struggled in each of his last two outings. You can hang on to him in deeper formats, but his push to regain the closer's role appears to be on hold.

Astros | Carlos Correa delivers in clutch

Sun, 29 May 2016 19:01:07 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa hit a pinch-hit, three-run home run in an 8-6 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Correa was supposed to have the game off, but he made the most of the surprise at-bat. His average has regressed this season, but he is still on pace to top 20 homers and 20 steals and remains a strong fantasy shortstop.

Astros | Carlos Gomez set for Tuesday return

Sun, 29 May 2016 13:15:12 -0700

Houston Astros OF Carlos Gomez (ribs) is expected to come off the disabled list on Tuesday, May 31. Gomez is 5-for-17 with a home run four games into his rehab assignment with Class AAA Corpus Christi.

Fantasy Tip: Prior to landing on the disabled list in the middle of this month with a bruised left rib cage, Gomez was one of the worst everyday players in the majors (.182 with no homers and five RBI in 121 at-bats). With that said, the two-time All-Star is far too accomplished to write off just yet and makes for a solid buy-low target, especially considering he has the ability to hit 10-15 home runs and steal 20-plus bases.

Astros | Colin Moran not starting

Sun, 29 May 2016 10:57:10 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Colin Moran is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano Sunday, May 29. 1B Luis Valbuena will start at third base, while 1B Tyler White will start at first base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: White has only one hit in his last seven games and is hitting only .192 this month. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use in their lineups.

Astros | Carlos Correa sitting out

Sun, 29 May 2016 10:51:06 -0700

Houston Astros SS Carlos Correa is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano Sunday, May 29. SS Marwin Gonzalez will start at shortstop and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez only has three hits in his last 10 games and should be avoided in most fantasy leagues until he posts better numbers.

Astros | Jason Castro not in the lineup

Sun, 29 May 2016 10:44:15 -0700

Houston Astros C Jason Castro is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano Sunday, May 29. C Evan Gattis will start at catcher, while OF George Springer will serve as the designated hitter. OF Colby Rasmus will start in right field, while OF Jake Marisnick will start in center field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Gattis has been posting solid numbers in recent games and should be an option at catcher for fantasy owners. Marisnick is still hitting only .145 so far this season and should be avoided in all leagues.
